Reply to the comment left by Chris at 23/11/2019 - 13:35Just happened to read this thread because I wanted to download the updated surrender of Tenancy document today, 6th January 2020.
Very interesting even though I, personally, do not require such licencing, yet.
I notice there are no comments here either. Did others manage to read or comment elsewhere on this in the Forum?... Read More

RLA welcome government crackdown on criminal landlords

Surely, we as landlords and members of various landlord representation bodies should only be concerned and interested in supporting ourselves in running our businesses in a responsible, correct and lawful manner? Since when do we together with the sheep within landlord bodies become the police here? I am fed up with hearing and reading about us criminal landlords and the RLA/NLA and its members being encouraged to become a neighbourhood watch of others and like sheep making a 'bah! bah!......... full sir! to every pronouncement from the jobsworth in the government.

Why and how did councils even become so involved in PRS businesses or encouraged to be anyway?
The exception being to ensure that those landlords on their registers housing UC claimants receive Rental payment are paid and on time.

They should be working with these landlords not busying themselves with the rights and wrongs of tenants complaining about landlords but never noticing the lack of these tenants complying.

Here in Guildford, another 3 x properties, 3 x bedroom, spacious, well-built, bargate stone, 17th century build; one previously housing the local borough council, head janitor/maintenance leader, have now been sold into the private sector 2018/2019. That income covers say 20 council workers for 1 year but is lost forever. This is a libdem ward too. Generation rent are trying to gain a pious foothold here too. All these types like nothing better than to save us from ourselves!... Read More

Landlords Insurance and empty properties?

Reply to the comment left by Rob Crawford at 26/07/2019 - 13:14
Having spent tiring days with various brokers involving property insurance renewal in 2 days time for one and another for an existing home insurance to become a new landlord insurance on an unoccupied property - ready to be let out - no exact date yet for a Tenant to occupy, I read your email, Rob and thinking it is late in the day what have I now got to lose I called the Alan Boswell Group and spoke with Alice, specialist in smaller landlord cover.

So glad I did! Personal service and flexible honest and comprehensive cover. Understand landlords may have an empty property, commencing, between and post letting too, nothing seemed to present a problem and a flexible can-do attitude - they automatically insure for this up to 90 days, no quibble - compare this to being passed on to another department because you do not fit their criterium but where no-one actually answers the call.

Fair price and amendments to policy once let, very easy to carry out down the line. Really pleased with this so thank you for the contribution.... Read More

Would two baths and two beds give a better return?

Your rent will reflect a slightly higher sum and be more desirable.
If your market is the town centre, professionals market I would try to create either an en-suite shower to master bedroom or a 2nd bathroom/smaller shower room with (space permitting) an outside separate storage area/cupboard. 2 Bathrooms attracts a wider range of renters, ie a couple or 2 sharers or at couple plus child.
If the property is a furnished one opt for a kingsize bed with the possibility of dividing them up into 2 separate ones.
Most people prefer their own private wash facility area.... Read More

The worst housing crisis since the war

The Germans enjoy their lovely old prefabs with self-sufficient living and beautifully tended lifestyle gardens of Eden, ie vegetable, fruit , relaxing and, of course, the sun! Akin to owning a Summer/holiday retreat on the coast of Dorset. In the main these inhabitants/week end escapists were determined, educated/technical workers/managers who did well for themselves and their families, may have even worked for Siemens, IAG etc . To rebuild the country, money flowed into Germany like oil from USA etc, we British, the unloved by French, General Charles DeGaulle, struggling to pay the war debt to USA were unloved.
In the meanwhile, my mother was on rations until 1952 struggling to feed a family of 7 (5) children. No genuine thanks given by those who profited and could start afresh here and brought their political criticism and fight over to us here.
The problem lies with issues of entitlement and the belief that others are to blame for weaknesses Our Western society is broken and weak: to understand the difference is to imagine being an immigrant and walking thousands of miles across unknown terrains over months to get here regardless of their final destination, beliefs, suitability and situation.
Ask our own to turn up to work at 8.30am on time and be ready to dedicated themselves or protect this country or prove themselves working until 5.30pm, may be living in shared accommodation for a period, and you would be out of luck. who would you wish to employ? Ask someone who has endured hardship across 1000's of miles unknown terrain and they will ask when requested and how high/long to jump. But all this without our weak, spineless, benefit system. The prevailing lack of ideals and identity are to blame. Mother EU has taken the roles away.
In 1908, my grandfather came to this country and ploughed on and on to be a success, even helped the governmental war efforts WW I and II, - upright, tough, smart and proud (nick-named by the family: 'The Judge!') - he was a true supporter of Queen, Empire and Country - not always the best but helped lay down the edifice of England ongoing. Our society no longer supports self-endeavour, determination and maturity to observe, meet see the world and its peoples - only Bear Grillis does that.... Read More
